“What she needed now was an exit plan. So she put the phone to her ear, pretending it was vibrating. “Hello,” she said to no one. “Yes, I’ll be right there.” She smiled, like look at me, so busy, I really have to go, and, turning away, she lifted a hand in a wave, still talking into the phone to avoid an awkward goodbye, except –Haha! Nice try, Maddie! ^o^ This book was off to a great start!
Her phone rang. And not the pretend kind. Risking a peek at Hot Biker Guy over her shoulder, she found him brows up, looking amused.”
"Clearly reading her mind, his mouth slowly curved. “So no interest, and certainly no chemistry,” he murmured, dipping his head to take in the fact that her misbehaving nipples were pressing up against the words BITE ME on her T-Shirt.
“R-right,” she managed. “No chemistry whatsoever.” But then she took a step into him instead of away, and look at that, suddenly his mouth was just there, and her hands were fisting in his fleece hoodie.
How had that happened?"
'"Um, Jax?"I was virtually plopping down right along with Maddie and Tara, enjoying this “visual” and needing a cold glass of ice tea, myself, to run along my overheated skin! ^_^
He glanced over his shoulder.
"You look..." Hot. "Overheated. Probably you should take off your other shirt, too."
Oh, yeah. Not trusting her voice, she merely nodded.
His lips quirked, but he said nothing as he reached up and behind him, tugging the shirt over his head in one smooth, very male motion.
And then he stood before her in those low-slung jeans, tool belt, and nothing else but a gleam of sweat.
"Better," she tried to say, staring at his tatts, but it came out more as a squeak. She was lucky not to be a puddle on the ground. Honest to God, the man shouldn't be allowed to look like that. It just wasn't fair to all the other men on the planet.
Turning to his task, he went at the wood for a while. Maddie backed up to a large wood round and plopped down. After a few minutes, Tara came out with a peace-offering tray of iced tea and glasses. "Oh, sweet Jesus," she whispered, eyes locked on Jax as she sank to the log next to Maddie.'
Smile...it makes people wonder what you're up to.
Experience is something you get… after you need it.
Learn from the mistakes of others you won't have time to make them all yourself.
Obeying the rules might be smart, but it's not as nearly as much fun.
She should have chosen sex. Note to self: always choose sex over physical labor!I'll save the scene about her thoughts while she's checking out Jax's tush in the attic for you to discover for yourself.
"It's not too late," he said very softly.
